Oaktree Announces That Opportunities Fund VIIb, L.P. Reaches A Distribution Milestone

Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE:OAK) announced today that OCM Opportunities Fund VIIb, L.P., along with its related parallel fund (“Opps VIIb”), will make a distribution of $1.26 billion on December 27, 2012. With this distribution, Opps VIIb will have made $12.33 billion in aggregate distributions since early 2011 and will have distributed to its investors their capital and preferred return in full. As a result, Opps VIIb will reach the so-called “crossover” point, after which a portion of the fund’s subsequent distributions will be paid to Oaktree as incentive income.

A fund distribution subsequent to crossover will generate gross incentive income to Oaktree, initially in the amount of 80% of investor distributions, and after Oaktree has received 20% of all the fund’s profits since inception, 20% of investor distributions. The portion payable to Oaktree will be reduced in accordance with the fund’s waterfall to account for tax-related incentive distributions made previously to Oaktree as the general partner. It is anticipated that Opps VIIb will pay Oaktree a tax-related incentive distribution applicable to the fourth quarter of 2012.

“Opps VIIb is an exemplary fund for Oaktree,” said Howard Marks, Chairman. “We raised our largest distressed debt fund at an opportune time and invested most of it immediately following the onset of the financial crisis in September 2008. The fund has returned capital promptly to its limited partners and has generated the strong risk-adjusted returns for which Oaktree is known. Simply put, it’s great to see that our largest fund is one of our top performers.”
